In the first year of a baby's life, there are usually 3 to 4 occasions which are celebrated. For my kids, there was a 28th day ceremony, the Christening, first Christmas, first Easter and then first birthday. For my friend's baby, there were some special occasions she wanted to preserve and this section of my baby scrapbook was dedicated to those occasions in little Anya's life.
Every section of my book has a header page and this was the header page for the Celebration section. A big garish and lavish cake which was embossed using some of my favorite ItsyBitsy folders. Then oodles of pearls and beads everywhere.
This is the page for baby's first Diwali. I wanted it to be grand and festive and I was kind of at a loss for a couple of days until I found in my stash my all time favorite ItsyBitsy glitter foam sheets. Yay!! The foam sheets formed the background and the orange intricate design is cameo cut.
My friend lives in Australia but both her parents and her husbands parents have a major base in Bangalore so naturally when they came down with the baby, they had a bash to welcome Anya to Bangalore. It's difficult to see but the title is actually Welcoming Anya to Bangalore. I went with a really busy pattern paper background and just touched up with some balloons, streamers and a present border at the bottom.
Finally this lucky baby will have the pleasure of attending weddings. Her father's sister is getting married in her first year so this page is to add all the adorable photos of Anya in wedding clothes. I cut out the heart swirly background on my cameo and added a white heart for the left side title and a blank red heart for Ash to add her notes. Gotta say this was one of my favorite pages in the book because not only did it turn out so nice, it was one of the quickest to do!
